Busy, busy, busy !

I have been busy making jewelry and other stuff (I won't mention the other stuff, they are really not as fun as making jewelry!).

Polymer clay pendant, textured with handmade stamps, milagro charm, horn and glass beads.

Polymer clay pendant, glass, brass.

I made these in Sherry's studio. They really were fun to make. They are real stones.
The necklace below is from Sherry. She gave it to me just before I went back home. I have worn it almost every day since then...

She also gave me these fun earrings. They are so cool and so comfortable!

More polymer clay pendants soon and some other experiments!
Thanks for stopping by ! :)

Since my return I have been playing with polymer clay.

Working with Sherry gave me a boost, ideas are flowing, new experiments are on their way...

More jewelry to show soon plus the beautiful necklace and earrings Sherry gave me...

It's a kind of magic ...

Internet is ...
On March the 31st 2007, I noticed someone from Tennessee left a link to my blog on their blog.
So I visited this blog and left a comment.
More than two years later after many e-mails and mails and packages I finally met Sherry.
I have been blessed to meet her and her family. They are awsome and generous people.

During my stay we explored Middle Tennessee, met a lot of interesting people and had some kind of jewelry workshop at StillWaters studio! We made faux polymer clay turquoise, other kind of beads, Sherry made some glass beads ( I was to0 scared to try : glass and fire together sound a bit scary to me and also using both hands at the same time!), we etched some copper, carved some stones, made some soldered bezels and fused some glass ... It was so fun to work together and to get to see how each of us gets things done.
We also went to see The Georgia O'Keeffe exhibition in Nashville and I got to see the Bat Tower!
We went to some cool stores and galleries too.
I also got to meet Shawn from Silo Studio ( she makes cool signs and cool furniture).

Here some of the stuff I made

Sherry wrote on her blog that her life is richer now she has a new friend, it's the same for me.
I really hope she will visit my tiny country and stay at my tiny tiny home!
Once again, thank you so much for this wonderful week, Sherry. I am very fortunate to know you :)

I love the postman !

When he delivers beauties like these :

Lucie made this gorgeous necklace, I don't even want to know how she made it, I know I won't have the patience to try ! This truly is a labour of love ... I know, I'm spoiled !

And she also sent some cool beads ( already in a drawer) and this tusk, it's huge and perfect for some very savage neckpiece!
So go visit Lucie's blog, she really makes wonders with thread, a needle and seed beads !
Thank you so much Lucie, MERCI ( je vais me venger !).
